About Playford 10
The Playford 10 Project was designed from the research report Playford Youth – A New Story which highlighted the need for young people in the north of Adelaide to be offered opportunities to develop their life skill capability. Through activities such as music, creative arts, sport and volunteering, young people can develop social skills, improved communication, team work, creativity, problem solving and build their social capital. These activities are also known to improve the development of strong, trusted relationships with mentors and role models.
Playford 10 is all about connecting children to ongoing activities. The project team works within schools with Year 4/5 students to identify their individual talents and strengths and link them into sports, arts or volunteering activities in their community.
Playford 10 is a partnership between South Australian Council of Social Service (SACOSS), Anglicare SA Communities for Children and the City of Playford and local arts, volunteering and sporting clubs. The project team are happy to hear from local groups who are interested in becoming part of the project.
